Event Description

Title
COVID-19: Ask the Experts – Board Members: How You Can and Should Step Up Now

Subject Matter Expert
Andy Robinson, Principal, Andy Robinson Consulting

In the face of massive uncertainty as a result of COVID-19, nonprofit board members may not know how to respond. Some go into emergency mode, while others tend to disappear. Neither move is your best move.

Join us for a spirited, provocative conversation about board governance in the age of COVID-19. We will cover:

  • How the board can best support staff
  • Using remote technology to deepen board engagement
  • How to raise more money now — and how to better involve your board
  • Tools for prioritizing and protecting core programs
  • The board's role in building partnerships to help you become stronger

This is an interactive webinar — yes, that's possible — so bring your questions, concerns, and ideas.

Send your questions or comments on this topic ahead of the session to [email protected]

*Space is limited to 500 participants. Please note that a recording of this webinar will be made available on NAO's webinar page for later viewing.
